Our Business

[Sales Department]

Our main business involves using a 22,000 m2 cargo-handling site (public cargo yard) in the Hizukushi-Maehata area as a base for unloading and loading steel materials, coal, a variety of plant materials, and other items. We also cover distribution services such as storage, cargo handling, and shipment, as well as on-location temporary receipt, storage, and shipment (marine and land transportation).
Additionally, we perform various cargo handling jobs even outside of Sasebo Port, and we also contribute to distribution in northern Nagasaki Prefecture

[Matsuura Office]

The Matsuura Thermal Power Plant, a coal-fired power station, is operated by The Electric Power Development Co., Ltd. and Kyushu Electric Power Company. This station has a total generating capacity of 3.7 million kW, supplying electricity to Kyushu, Shikoku, and Chugoku regions.
Our Matsuura Office uses heavy machinery called power shovels to unload large volumes of coal as a fuel for power generation brought by large ocean-going vessels from Australia and Indonesia. The Matsuura Office also makes cargo-unloading plans and provides supervision during unloading operations.

[Oshima Office]

・Steel materials yard and section steel yard
At the steel materials and section steel yards within the Oshima Shipbuilding yard, we use a magnetic overhead crane and a jib crane to perform unloading operations (cargo handling operations) for steel materials that will become the base material for boats constructed by the Oshima Shipbuilding Company and loading operations for materials that are supplied to subcontractors. Additionally, we check and sort steel materials that we’ve received, and we perform a type of surface treatment known as shot blasting.

・Carrier operation
We transport and move manufactured blocks of various sizes (ship parts) from various factories to our worksite on the premises of the Oshima Shipbuilding yard. We have ten carriers in four varieties (800-ton, 550-ton, 150-ton, and 100-ton) to accommodate different block weights, and our vehicles are fully operational on an almost daily basis.

・Arrangement of marine transportation for blocks
We use tugboats and barges to conduct marine transportation for mutual transportation of supplied materials and subcontracted goods between the Oshima Shipbuilding yard and subcontractors. We transport to a wide-range of locations within Sasebo, Matsuura, and Nagasaki.
